They all sound so ignorant. Step down off your high horses and realize that its a closed loop WATER cooling system.

They said it's "fake"... It's like a ferrari owner calling a hyundai a fake car because his car costs 10x more. Go figure..

Well one thing is for sure there are certain people on these forums, even myself included cause it's just fun to get involved, who appear to be fan boys of certain brands whether they mean to appear this way or not. When you see for yourself how many posts threads have on certain products on this forum it will eventually put other brands on the bottom. Doesn't mean that they are bad or not as good it's just the hype one product is receiving probably do to a sale on the item. Like take Silverstone Cases for example go look at the Silverstone Club post in the case section and it's being pushed further and further down while Cooler Master, Lancool, and others remain well on top with 1000 or more posts and tons of views. Does that mean Silverstone doesn't make awesome cases? No it doesn't it's just being overshadowed by the hype and popular crowd controlling peoples views on what to buy cause they think their product is best, again I'm not trying to start a war as I would rightfully defend my products to as well as try to sell them cause I think they are the best. I didn't buy this H50 off the hype I bought it cause of the price and easy water cooling as I've never done it before and this appears to be pretty rock solid construction, almost leak proof. Great entry level water cooling product. It's quite understandable why this was done cause after all the cooling you get off of it probably isn't near as good as true water cooling, but closer to that of the top tier best air coolers and it's overshadowing other true water cooling products.

You bring up a very good point. But I still don't think its right to move this thread. Because now this thread will dominate the air cooling section. And I don't think those who use air cooling are going to be thrilled about it.

HERE, thats what are you talking about?

hi there,

I joined a couple of days ago and I just wanted to share my experience for the benefit of new club members still deciding on whether intake or exhaust is better.

I initially installed mine on push and pull as intake then changed it to exhaust after doing some reasearch where I saw some people set it up as exhaust, then read some more forums that intake is better than exhaust so I changed it again as intake. I now have it as an intake and I'll think I'll keep it this way after taking some readings each time I change the setup. I'm 1-2c coller in intake and the lightings looks better for me as I'm using GT1850 to push and the UV fan to pull. See pics.

In my personal opinion, I think the decision to set it up as either intake or exhaust depends on the airflow inside the case. It did'nt matter a lot on my case as I think I have a good airflow. Don't want to enter in any debate so peace everyone!

Very nice set up. You might want to try exhaust and use a fan shroud. Some of us have been able to match intake results. It's a good thing. Anything to keep from dumping that warm air into the case. No war. You set your setup anyway you want that gets you the best results. We only share our results to give others ideas.

Moved to Water cooling as this system is a Hydro setup and as such IS water cooling.

Anyone know of any decent deals on the h50 anywhere right now? ~60$ maybe

I will be keeping an eye on this thread for any further trolling.

This is your warning.

Thanks! I did want to use a shroud, unfortunately I don't have enough space to insert one and I don't want to put the fan outside the case. If you know if a shroud that's less than 15mm deep (although I doubt if this will make ay improvement) - you'll make me a happy overclocker!
